Hummus

Weekend with pleasant climate is a Bliss Friday lunch is always a treat ,Lunching with grilled Chicken accompanied by  protein rich homemade Hummus.

                 

I never knew some 17 years back when I sat by the window seat of Kuwait Airways, looking out of that tiny window at the vast expanse of the universe , already missing home, that I would be making and blogging Hummus sitting in Kuwait.

It comes from Arabic word hummus means “chickpeas”. Its a best Arabic cold mozzah means an appetizer. It’s mainly staple of Middle East and Egypt  But now enjoyed across the world. It makes wonderful snack or appetizer serve with warm pita bread.

I remember my first encounter with Hummus and it was not that happy meet . Initially Hummus to me was kind of boring dish color,appearance and taste too. Slowly with each day passing I kind of developed my taste buds and now I literally Love Hummus.I am fairly convinced that hummus is some of the best stuff . It might look boring in the bowl, but this blend of soft chickpeas, olive oil,  lemon juice, tahini and garlic creates a dip that is so much more than the sum of its parts.

Enjoy !
